The London Mayor's plan to close Wimbledon Police Station is totally unacceptable.
Funding for local police services has been cut by both the Government and the Mayor, while people are being put at risk.
The station promotes visible community policing and makes reporting crime easier. Closing police stations is a false economy. Forcing officers to spend hours commuting between distant police stations and their beat at the beginning and end of their shift, when they take a meal break and whenever they make an arrest, will cost far more than what is saved by closing buildings.

We the undersigned call on: London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the Government to keep Wimbledon Police Station open and fund the service properly; and Wimbledon's MP to stand up to the Government on this issue.
We will include your name when submitting the petition.
